The article focuses on the broadband ruling of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that could establish an authority to regulate the Internet in the U.S. It notes that the 706 report on broadband deployment could give the commission a statutory hook to regulate broadband through Title II reclassification. Moreover, the FCC argued that there is a need for reclassification of broadband in order to reform universal services.
